Summer shares are a great way to experience the bounty of the summer harvest without committing to the whole season. Summer shares run for a shorter period of 11 weeks, from the end of June through early September, and include all the most popular veggies we have all season: tomatoes, sweet corn, green beans, potatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, onions, and much more. These shares are smaller in size (comparable to our half and small flex shares), and so are ideal for couples, small families, or those who just want to give the CSA a try! Each week will include 4-6 different seasonal, staple items in manageable quantities. Generally, the summer shares do not include specialty crops or greens -- just the summertime favorites. An example box might include a half dozen ears of sweet corn, two cucumbers, two zucchinis, a pound of potatoes, and a few tomatoes, though of course there will be plenty of variety! The photos depict actual summer and similar half shares that were part of the CSA in 2017 and 2018.
